The race is getting tougher and more exciting in Ward 98 eThekwini Municipality.
Previous month the candidate nomination between all the nominees some lost as Author Mgobhozi won by more than 36 votes against Joe Mbambo who is now Independent Candidate.According to post on Umgababa Group ANC members expressed difference view on Joe Mbambo voting card as some asked who's Joe Mbambo now? Some said they are tired of ANC.Read pictures attached.
The main challenge this Ward experiencing under ANC leadership is poor service delivery , incomplete projects include Umgababa Beach now it's more than five years the beach never end under ANC leadership.
It's is now a norm since Bheki Thabethe who was the Ward 98 counsellor died after long illness even though he didn't complete all the task he started five years ago.
eThekwini Municipality is one of the most popular rich metro but most citizen of this Ward are suffering, Housing projects also incomplete few houses were built , nobody account on community members why housing projects still on hold.
In history Umgababa is well known coastal area with lovely beach, most tourist around the country visited this place for entertainment purpose especially in summer.
My main concern as the political battles continues , Umgababa resident will continue to suffer more than before as even waste collection is not yet adequate.
My question is what is main objective for those independent candidate? Do they still interested to serve community? Oh they fighting because they want to enrich themselves.
The independent candidate picture is questionable as it contain famous African National Congress colours which is black,gold and yellow.
According to my own view it's could be hard if independent candidate win the upcoming local government elections if eThekwini Municipality win by African National Congress.
Furthermore the turn out were less as youth are fed up by voting as they are unemployed.
Therefore come November 01 , 2021 as the battle between Author Mgobhozi and Joe Mbambo continues.
